ALEPH Rabbinical Student Shir Yaakov Feit receives prestigious Wexner Fellowship

Shir Yaakov Feit, an ALEPH Ordination Program (AOP) rabbinical student, is the second AOP student ever to receive the prestigious Wexner Fellowship.

Wexner Graduate Fellowships are awarded each year to 20 outstanding individuals who seek to prepare themselves through graduate training for careers in the Cantorate, Jewish Education, Jewish Professional Leadership, Jewish Studies, and the Rabbinate.

Shir Yaakov says, “I’m overjoyed and humbled by my acceptance into the Wexner Fellowship community. The process of applying and interviewing was in itself transformational; I can only imagine what the learning, training, mentorship and peer support will be like. This opportunity allows me to enter into the AOP in an even more immersive way. I am so deeply grateful.”

Join us in celebrating Shir Yaakov as he links the ALEPH Ordination Program community with the community of Wexner Fellows and brings Jewish Renewal spiritual technologies further into the Wexner world.
